One other thing I can't stress enough is that it's full of info about how players move around the various leagues, what happens when guys get promoted too quickly and also the hazards faced by guys who end up too old for their leagues and how teams themselves handle players sometimes causing problems for themselves.

Good stuff.
On a related note, I ordered Shandler's book for the first time at the same time I ordered BP this year, and while I will be forever faithful to BP, Shandler's analysis and breakdowns are fantastic for fantasy purposes. If anyone is looking for another good read, its well worth the dough.

One great thing about paying for an online subscription this year is that they are letting their own guy (Normandin) handle the fantasy articles. I think they went through Rotowire last year, maybe Rotoworld and they didn't really utilize PECOTA. It's fantastic to see an in house guy using PECOTA for fantasy related articles. I wish he'd write more though.

I just did. Never ordered/read it before but I figured I'd give it a shot. If nothing else I'm sure it'll be entertaining. Plus my wife is always telling me I need to read more. :-D
